I Thought World Of Tanks Was In Open Beta

But actually the open beta only started today for Europe and North America. Was what went before a closed beta? A shy beta? An alpha? I just don’t know. Look, North Americans can sign up here, and Europeans here. Although it looks like you can still access North American servers from Europe, if you want, so that is a pleasant surprise.

Unexpectedly, World Of Tanks isn’t really a world populated by tanks, in which tanks wear suits and go to work and do the shopping, but more like a highly populated tank fighting arena-ladder-championship system, where tanks can team up to explode each other with carefully balanced ordnance. Some tanks are good at long distance hammering, others are small and fast and shooty. None are much good as healers, and some of them aren’t good tanks, which seems odd. So World Of Tanks is a kind of long distance boxing fraternity for overweight tractors, based on Platonic World War II tank concepts. That’s what it is. Yep. It is also free to play. I’ve posted a video of what happens in World Of Tanks below. (Oh and also the actual trailer.)
